The research proved that Lithuanian teachers mostly experience stress due to plenty of paper work and different reports, and low salary. The atmosphere at school has least impact on teachers’ stress. Teachers most often use rational stress-coping strategy. Correlation between teachers’ age and use of the stress-coping strategies was observed.
